Exact same situation for me! Same building and the third bedroom is still unassigned. I also have the smallest room, but rent is under $1000 so I guess I can't complain.


Yeah, my rent is just $1000 utilities included, so I'm pretty pleased.

On the floor plan, it looks like my room doesn't have a closet though which is going to be a problem.


I had that problem living in New York before and bought a hanging rack and some dressers. Some friends were more creative and "made" closets out of plumbing pipes / curtain rods, etc. You definitely have a lot of options! :)

Just get a wardrobe. Closets in the city are such a luxury. Example: my closet is in my living room.

I completely missed the fact that we're in the same building haha! Yeah my roommate lives there already and she said the same thing. The elevator is pretty small but she said you'd be amazed at the things people squeeze in there. What floor are you on? I'll be in the third floor with my dog! I'm just excited that I'm on a low enough floor that I won't have to rely on the elevator. I'm also excited to use the fire escape as a balcony Friends-style.


I'm apartment 54, which I assume is 5th floor. It'll be a good workout for my legs! And I'm excited to see your dog! Are you sneaking him in or are you allowed to have him?

I assume since I'm unit 34, we're on the same side of the building. If so, we should definitely only visit each other's apartments via the fire escape/window (I'm sorry I'm obsessed with them, they're new to me). My dog is technically not allowed, but UAH said it was fine as long as my roommates are fine with it and there are no complaints. He's going to my parents for the first few weeks while I get moved in, but the plan is to bring him down after Labor Day. I'm hoping it'll work out --he's super clean and rarely barks.

Hey guys!
I've been a lurker for awhile but thought it would be worth it to make a profile to be a part of this thread.
I can't wait to meet all of you in the fall! (Also, just got assigned Lenfest and I'm very excited)

Also, count me in for this bp tourney haha

Glad were getting a good group together for bp.

Also, does anyone know if 420 116th street has a doorman/elevator? What about laundry? Thanks again

All I've been able to find has been this: http://www.wikicu.com/420_West_116th_Street

No idea if it's accurate, but says there are laundry facilities in the basement and a single elevator that is unreliable. No info on a doorman.

Any cyclists in here? I'm wondering how difficult it is to get out of the city for some riding. Doing laps in central park is a big compromise.

So I just decided to fill out the housing app in case my plans on finding a wonderful, magical, huge, affordable place in NYC don't pan out. I went with (in this order): 420 West 116th Street, 415 West 115th Street, & 411 West 115th Street.

How badly did I mess up?

I don't think it's likely you will get any of those buildings applying this late. I applied about 10 days after the deadline and got housing on W 108th St.

So does anyone else who is trying to do law school housing still not have an assignment? I'm tired of getting my hopes up every Monday morning only to be disappointed every day of the week.

Gahh I thought I was the last one when I got mine last week. Have you called or emailed them at all?

Sent an email 2-3 weeks ago and they said they would let me know soon. Had to change my max rent, so maybe my application got resubmitted? Was approved like 10 days ago and it has been radio silence ever since.
